How to enable dark mode in Evernote

Evernote for Mac in Dark Mode

Dark mode in Evernote makes reading and writing easier on your eyes by allowing you to switch to a darker, higher-contrast color theme. Dark mode is available in Evernote for Mac, iOS, and Android.

Enable Dark Mode

To enable dark mode, you need to use the most recent versions of Evernote on Mac, iOS, or Android. If you don’t see the options to enable dark mode as described below, you may need to update either your operating system or your Evernote app. See the FAQ at the bottom of this article for operating system and app requirements.

  • Mac

    Dark Mode is currently only available for Macs using macOS 10.14 (Mojave). When you enable Dark Mode on your Mac, Evernote will automatically switch to the dark color theme. To enable Dark Mode on your Mac:

    1. From the Apple menu, choose System Preferences.
    2. Click General.
    3. Next to the Appearance options at the top of the window, select Dark.

     

    Notes:

    • Switch to Light Mode in your Mac's System Preferences to disable Dark Mode.
    • When in Dark Mode, you can use a light-colored note editor if you prefer. In Evernote, go to Evernote > Preferences from the menu bar and check the box for “Use Light Mode for notes.”
  • iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch

    To enable the dark theme on your iOS device:

    1. Open Evernote.
    2. Tap the Account tab at the far right of the navigation toolbar.
    3. Find Dark Theme in the menu, then toggle the switch. It should be green when the dark theme is enabled.

     

    Note: Toggle the dark theme setting off to disable it.

  • Android

    To enable the dark theme on your Android device:

    1. Open Evernote.
    2. Tap the menu button (three horizontal lines) to open the menu.
    3. Find Dark Theme in the menu, then toggle the switch. It should be green when the dark theme is enabled.

     

    Note: Toggle the dark theme setting off to disable it.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the operating system and app version requirements to enable dark mode?

  • Mac: macOS 10.14 (Mojave) only, Evernote version 7.6
  • iOS: iOS 10.3 and above, Evernote version 8.17
  • Android: Android 5.0 and above, Evernote version 8.6

Why are some parts of the app not dark, even in dark mode?

We were excited to give you dark mode as soon as possible, even though there are a handful of areas in the app where that’s not the case yet. We’re working on fixing that. In addition, some items—like images you’ve added with white backgrounds—may retain their white backgrounds even when using dark mode.

When is dark mode coming to Windows and/or Evernote Web?

We don’t currently have a timeline to bring dark mode to Windows or Evernote Web. We’re currently focusing on performance improvements and feature parity in these clients before we make changes to the color theme.
